    well i was under the impression you can only get monthly lenses for this using the hc2 form... although i normally use my optical voucher for glasses as i dont use that many lensesand prefer dailies.

    Low income Scheme details NHS Low Income Scheme The Authority's Patient Services administers the NHS Low Income Scheme (LIS) on behalf of the Department of Health for England, the Scottish Executive Health Department and the National Assembly for Wales. The Scheme provides income related help with health costs for people who are not exempt, nor automatically entitled to remission from NHS chargeable services, but who may nevertheless be entitled to help with the following costs on low income grounds:


    • NHS prescriptions
    • NHS dental treatment
    • Sight tests, glasses and contact lenses
    • Travel to hospital for NHS treatment
    • NHS wigs and fabric supports
